Simply put, this book is the conference of a lifetime in print form. Louie Giglio, Francis Chan, Beth Moore, John Piper, Judah Smith, and Christine Caine are some of the most beloved Christian leaders of my generation. Now, if you have ever attended a conference you know there will be sessions you hope will end quickly and others you wish would go on for hours because you are being moved in a way you imagined. While I did not enjoy every contributor’s content, I certainly found others life changing.
There were two chapters in particular which had such an impact on me, I will have no problem recommending this book to anyone. John Piper’s chapter titled “Boast Only in the Cross,” left me speechless. In short, he makes clear the difference between a life well lived and a life wasted. If you purchased this book only for this chapter, it would be money well spent. Louie Giglio’s chapter titled, “Passion, Purpose, and Designer Jeans,” should be mandatory reading for every high school graduate. Giglio speaks to bringing glory to God in whatever gifting you have.
I don’t know that I would have ever pursued this book if I hadn’t been given a copy to review from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to read it.
